New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

Niels Provos Systrace 1.6f and earlier on the x86_64 Linux platform allows local users to bypass intended access restrictions by making a 32-bit syscall with a syscall number that corresponds to a policy-compliant 64-bit syscall, related to race conditions that occur in monitoring 64-bit processes.
